Furby, the interactive pet toy created by Tiger Electronics and Hasbro, was one of the hot toys of Christmas 1998 and people lined up in toy stores worldwide to buy them.
A Furby can interact or “speak” with other Furbys using an infra-red port. They have 6 other sensors as well. A motion sensor, a tummy sensor, back sensors, sound and light sensors, and a tongue or “feeding” sensor. They wiggle their ears, move their body, blink their eyes and even move their mouths as they speak.
Furbys can play games such as ‘Furby says’, ‘ask Furby’ and ‘hide and seek’. They dance and they can even learn tricks! All with the use of 4 AA batteries. When you first get a Furby they speak their own language, something called “Furbish”. As time goes along, they start to learn English as you play with them. They come in many different styles and colours.
This year, Furby Boom has arrived! Furby Boom allows Furby to hatch 50 virtual Furby Furblings eggs!
